Stovetop is looking more and more dangerous by the minute.

e made two trips to Stovetop over consecutive days last week, and we’re far from being sick of it.

Chai latte ($4)

The chai latte at Stovetop is divine; the pot is jammed full with dark tea leaves and aromatic spices; miles away from the powered/syrup versions more commonly seen amongst cafes today. It came alongside the cutest pot of honey to tune the latte to just the right level of sweetness. Certainly one of the better chais I’d tried and easily something that highlights the attention to detail at Stovetop and the crew’s love for good coffee and tea.

Skinny latte

 We’ve had our fair share of coffees here, and on all occasions they’ve been consistently good. A smooth blend and a perfect, aromatic kickstart in the morning (or any hour, really).

Duck egg baked in sauteed spinach, roast pumpkin, persian feta with house za’atar and toast V ($13)

We mentioned last time that we loved the cinnamon waffles at Stovetop. For those looking for a savoury brekkie, the duck egg is definitely our fave. Baked in a little pot and peppered with sauteed spinach and large chunks of roast pumpkin, it’s all brought together by a creamy hit of persian feta. Dip the crunchy buttered bread in and it easily hits the spot.

Latkes, sweet potato and chia with poached eggs, baba ganoush and rocket V GF ($14)

The latkes were hearty, ohsocrunchy bombs of sweet potato, accompanied by two perfectly poached eggs. It all sat on top a smoky bed of baba ganoush, which I quickly mopped up with my latkes. There’s definitely a wide range of options available to vegetarians, with some dishes that you may not have come across before.

IMG_3901 We’re really liking Stovetop. The food and coffee are consistently good, the staff are always friendly, and the prices are damn reasonable.

We may have to restrain ourselves from coming here too often; that menu is easily going to be devoured within the next month. Eeek.
